Vaayadi Petha Pulla shines with a genuine bonhomie, thanks to the lively lilt, Aaradhana’s cheerful innocence, and excellent singing by Vaikom Vijayalakshmi and Sivakarthikeyan!

Of the four songs by Niladri Kumar, Aahista is a sprawling song that starts slow and peacefully and builds itself up brilliantly. Niladri Kumar adds the music layer by layer, very creatively, while Arijit and Jonita hold forth with their vocals impressively.
